Cooper Aerobics Goes Red for American Heart Month
Today marks the 10th anniversary of the American Heart Association‘s Go Red for Women Movement and also kicks off American Heart Month. We are proud to Go Red and support this important cause. We share a mission with the American Heart Association—working to fight heart disease and stroke. For more than 40 years we have been helping people Get Cooperized through the practice of preventive medicine by identifying early signs of heart disease.
Our organization has a longstanding history with the American Heart Association. In 1992, Dr. Kenneth H. Cooper launched the first Dallas Heart Walk. They started with just 400 walkers, and today, the Dallas Heart Walk is the largest in the nation with more than 50,000 walkers, raising more than $4 million for cardiovascular research.
Here’s a few ways that we are showing our support to fight heart disease and stroke:
- Go Red with Heart Healthy Tips: Like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter and Pinterest for daily heart healthy tips, articles, videos and inspiration. This month all of our social channels are going red! Plus, we’ll have new articles and videos from our Cooper experts throughout the month on our Health Tips page.
- Shop to your heart’s content. Cooper Spa Dallas is donating 10 percent of gift card proceeds from Feb. 1-14 to the American Heart Association. And all month long, Cooper Spa Dallas will donate 10 percent of all retail products that are marked with a red heart. Purchase online or call 972.392.7729.
- Irresistibly Heart Healthy Culinary Demo: Want to learn how to make heart smart choices without feeling deprived? Cooper Clinic Registered Dietitian Cindy Kleckner will demonstrate how fresh ingredients and bold flavors can make a delicious difference on Monday, Feb. 11 at Cooper Craig Ranch in McKinney. Heart smart substitutions to reduce fat, saturated fat, sodium, cholesterol and calories will be emphasized. Register here.
- Race to No Place: Join us on Saturday, Feb. 23 at Cooper Fitness Center at Craig Ranch for a stationary cycling relay, benefiting the American Heart Association. Teams of two to ten people will “race” with the goal of “traveling” the most miles. Register here.
We hope you’ll join us in building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular disease and stroke. Leave a comment and tell us how you plan to Go Red this month.
